Turner field entrance (taken by me)
Sitting at my site of the Atlanta Braves baseball field I just think as a kid I would stay glued to the TV every time the braves would come on . The only problem was I lived in Florida my whole life and never got to visit the stadium until this year . I was ecstatic I didn’t have tickets that day but I wasn’t a problem they have three boots in the front where you can acquire tickets. As I sit in the hot sun looking at the details of the design of the field and the outside, each piece of the field brings back a memory to me. I look at the sign at the top that reads “Turner field” and I remember nights driving down I-75 looking at that sign light up the night sky as a game was being played. The busy street behind me (hank Aaron street) was one of the roads I got lost on when I first moved to Atlanta!!
The road is very unforgiving to lost drivers and you can find yourself getting honked at quickly. A couple of people were out here as well taking pictures of the field because this is the last year the braves will be playing at this field before moving to Cobb county. This makes me a little sad because the people in Atlanta really take pride in having there baseball team called the “Atlanta Braves” actually play baseball in Atlanta. The stadium gives a feeling that it is no doubt in Atlanta. The Coca-Cola bottle and the chic-fil-a cow can be seen a mile away on top of the stadium. Both companies are
chick fil a and coke statue at turner feild.
huge sponsors and have both been founded in Atlanta Georgia. When I look at the brown bricking on the front and the baseball in between the turner field sign American baseball comes to my head. The parking lot even has a baseball field painted in it !! The numbers on the outside of the field the field give honor to all of the greats that played for the braves. Hank Aaron is my favorite player of the game he came up in a time where is wasn’t easy being a black man in sports and not only did he play the sport, he dominated being the all time leader in home runs and no one has even come close to his record.

The college football hall of fame has always been a favorite place of mine to visit. The scenery of been right in the heart of downtown Atlanta and on the busy Marietta street. When ever I visit the first thing I notice about the design of the building is the entrance. The 30 feet tall entrance is shaped like a 1930s leather back helmet that players used to play with when football was first created. I’ve been inside of the college football hall of fame and the images my mind collect are breath taking, And bring back a lot of memories that impact my emotions. The helmet wall is amazing with over 700 helmets representing all College football teams. I look hard as I find my team I used to play for. The halls are filled with amazing images of old players and current players. The information posted as you walk also gives you an insight on how historic college football is to America. As I walk along the street and glare at the building next to the Philips arena I think of how I fell in love with college football in the beginning … My cousin Joe Cohen signed to play with the Florida gators in 2003 I was a mere child at barely 8 years old. My cousin Joe comes to my house in this blue and orange jersey and I am not sure if it was because those are complimentary colors or I just like the jersey. Never the less I fell in love with the Florida gators and from then on I went to all of his home games.
I was determined to play college football when I was in high school I worked my but off in every game and caught the attention of LaGrange college in LaGrange Georgia . I got signed!! I played my freshmen year and due to money and injuries my college football career was cut short, But I loved every minute of it! As I am walking I see how the workers are very inviting greeting everyone as they see them. Its funny while working at Publix I was offered a job to work their, I still might take that offer up. At night the lights glow as if they are trying to mimic a college football game on a Saturday night. I love everything about the architectural build of the college football hall of fame it captures and glorifies all of the greatness that comes with playing football.
The college football hall of fame is located on 250 Marietta st NW Atlanta Georgia. The building is adjacent to the Philips arena where the Atlanta hawks play and also across the street from the world of coke.. Theirs a heavy traffic flow on the road any time of the day especially rush hour traffic. From the front the college football hall of fame building has a long entrance with a long horizontal silhouette of football players and football field numbers. The brown piece of the building is built to resemble a leather football helmet from the beginning days of football. The staff welcomes you in at the door. Regardless if you have knowledge or not of the game they are here to make your experience go smooth as possible. The college football hall of fame was not always in Georgia. In 1951 the first college football hall of fame was built in south ben Indiana .
Once inside the college football hall of fame there is a wall with 700 + helmets on the wall to represent every college team in America!
. In august 2014 This building of the college football hall of fame was built in Atlanta. Its main intent was to put a spot light on the greats of the game, and reward them for there accomplishments.Their is a loud atmosphere walking into the college football hall of fame, So many people walking on the street and heavy traffic going into the building. A lot of families come here to enjoy a day of festivities. The open space around the building lets me capture great photos and ( feel less creepy).
